The aim of the game is connect 5 of your suit symbol, either red (STARS) or blue (STRIPES).
Please view the in game 'How To Play' screen for further rules of the game.
Any given game of 'Connect Wars' plays out in a similar style to many tactic based board games such as 'GO' (originated in China over 2,500 years ago, a strategic board game for two players) or 'Blokus' (players must choose their tactics carefully, trying to expand their own territory while blocking their opponents). A good description of the 'Connect Wars' game system would be 'GO' meets 'Connect Four' (aka Plot Four, Four in a Row, and Four in a Line).
I do plan on improving the AI by enabling the computer player to use Armour pieces to protect their own suit symbols. I also plan on reducing the chance of being dealt a Flip piece as this has proven to be an extremely powerful modifier.
Please post a review and tell me what you think... thanks for playing!
